        My field camera a Shen Hao 5x7 has basically all the movements and lots of
bellows. Bellows length might be more of an issue with some field cameras
then movements. Some 4x5 field cameras won't have very long bellows. Not
really an issue for landscapes. Every different camera can be different. I
wouldn't get stuck on the names.
